Ruth Rowland specialises in hand drawn lettering and word as image.
It's all about letters - wild or elegant, casual or ornate, edgy or playful ... I love to combine old and new technology. In my studio you'll find antique dip ink pens and Japanese brushes lying next to my Apple Mac and Wacom Tablet.
I'm a keen collector of pens and brushes and use them to work with ink on paper which is then scanned and developed on screen in Photoshop and Illustrator.
Briefs can range from one word
or phrase to blocks of copy or full
colour illustration. I enjoy experimenting with word as image - a subject that has fascinated me since finishing my MA in expressive typography at Central St Martins.
Starting out in the music industry, I now enjoy working globally for a wide variety of clients.
